With Outlook 2007, Desktop Search / Instant Search is promoted by notifying you with a pop-up and a button / pane. The pane will have the text “Click here to enable Instant Search”. Because some people believe this search slows down your computer, it may be a wish to turn the Desktop Search off and remove notification to enable Instant Search:
To remove the Instant search button, do the following:
- On the Tools menu, click Options.
- Click Other, and then click Advanced Options.
- Under General settings, clear the Show prompts to enable Instant Search check box
